Editorial Reviews

Would American Idol winner Carrie Underwood have landed a major-label recording contract without winning the hugely popular television contest? Probably. The big-voiced Oklahoman has the pipes, the look, the pedigree, and, most important, the emotional resonance to sustain a professional career. As an investment in her future, her label eschewed the easy path in putting out an album to take advantage of her publicity, going for a name producer, Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Faith Hill, Lonestar), to handle half the tracks. It also solicited material from the same top songwriters (Diane Warren, Brett James, Troy Verges, Rivers Rutherford) who stock albums by Hill, Martina McBride, Trisha Yearwood, and Wynonna. "Jesus, Take the Wheel," the hit first single, shows off the best of Underwood's power vocals, while the sexy rocker "We're Young and Beautiful" pulls her out of her ballad-heavy comfort zone, and her autobiographical "I Ain't in Checotah Anymore" bolsters her authenticity. If the young performer oversings on occasion (the overwrought bonus track, "Inside Your Heaven"), and settles for too many generic themes, she still surprises in her ability to go head-to-head with country’s reigning females. Will Underwood really survive to be a contender for the Martina throne? Let's just say that American Idol judges and voters picked the right contestant. If the posturing Bo Bice had won, rock stars would hardly be quaking in their boots. --Alanna Nash

4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better Than I Expected It To Be...4 Stars November 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Like all American Idol produced albums, there is always some inconsistency with production and etc... There is the slightest bit of this on Carrie's album. We first began to truly see this with Fantasia's exceptional debut, Ruben sophomore effort (better than his debut Soulful), and of course multi-platinum pop-rocker Kelly Clarkson's Grammy deserving Breakaway. SOME HEARTS presents a truly credible country album without the American Idol aspect attached, which may mark the first American Idol debut to officially shed that image.

Carrie's debut is just as expected-a country set that has some pop sensibilities. The emphasis is on some because for the most part, this album will appeal to those who loved Carrie on American Idol as well as those who love a good country album. The pop sensibility comes with such a track as the excellent "Some Hearts" which features driving guitars, slick production and Carrie rising to a high E. Despite that, Carrie sings her heart out on this appropriate title track.

On her opening track "Wasted", as with ever American Idol album, Carrie's grabs the audience's attention with a well written selection that shows off Carrie's pure upper register. That is followed by an incredibly country influenced "Don't Forget to Remember Me", which isn't a bad track, but it slightly lessens the heightened momentum created by the great "Wasted". Nonetheless, that is where "Some Hearts" and the touching first single "Jesus Take The Wheel," which is made of a stunning piano, string, and electric guitar driven arrangement, throw the album back into full swing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great debut cd! November 18, 2005
By Jake Z
Format:Audio CD
It's rare that I buy a cd and like every track, especially when it is an artist that I have had no prior knowledge of. I heard of Carrie Underwood, but I'm not a watcher of American Idol. I just knew that she won, and that she was a country girl. I read some reviews and I was curious, so I went ahead and bought the cd. I'm glad I did! I have to say I am really impressed with the songs here. Carrie has a great voice, and knows how to be emotive and powerful. The first single "Jesus, Take The Wheel" is powerful and moving. She really shines on the ballads. Other favorites I have on the cd include "Before He Cheats", "Starts With Goodbye", "Don't Forget To Remember Me", "That's Where It Is", "The Night Before (Life Goes On)", "I Ain't In Checotah Anymore", and more. Overall a great debut album... I look forward to seeing where she goes in her career!

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive debut! November 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Carrie Underwood and Bo Bice were the 1st and second place winners in last years American Idol. Bo's album comes out next momth. Carrie's is here. What a fantastic album! The song selection here is pretty strong as is the production. The songs all sound like they would have fit right in on a Martina or Faith album. This does NOT sound like the winner of some TV singing contest, Carrie sounds like she's been doing this her whole life and has been given a shot at the big time. She sounds very natural through out the album. I hope "Before He Cheats" gets released as a single. The song shows a very different side of Carrie than the rest of the album. Musically it reminds me of "There Is No Arizona", lyrically, it's just scary!!! It's about a woman seeking revenge after he's cheated on her. Great song, but like they say Hell hath no fury..... Carrie clearly has a career ahead of her. This could be the start of a long running career.

First of all I am not a big fan of country music, the very thought of it makes me cringe and shudder sometimes. Very few country artists have managed to make an impression that makes me turn around and take notice. Now I must admit, I watched American Idol and Carrie was my pick to win the competition. Technically speaking she was the best vocalist out of all the finalists. However Carrie's choice of songs and their recurring country themes kept making me wary about what an entire country album would sound like. Mostly because all of the songs she sang were not her own but really well known songs that if you've heard the originals, no matter who sings it, it doesn't compare to the originals.

However "Some Hearts" is truly a pleasant suprise and delivers the most solid freshman effort by any Idol. Yes Kelly Clarkson's debut album was one of the most universal solid albums, but nowhere near the quality of her sophmore effort. Materialwise, Some Hearts is on par with Clarkson's sophmore effort, in it's own respective genre of course. The lead single "Jesus Take The Wheel" is one of those rare inspirational gems with a punch. With the inspirational lyrics and the soaring vocals this one is sure to be a winner at Country radio. The second single "Some Hearts" (This has actually been confirmed contrary to a prior review reporting "Wasted" as the second single) is instantly recognizable as a mainstream vehicle. The song with it's infection chorus and soaring crescendo is sure to make this track a fan favorite.

The true gems on "Some Hearts" however are the tracks "Before He Cheats" and "I Ain't In Checotah Anymore." Carrie really shines on these two tracks. You can genuinely tell that Underwood loves the material.
